Someone from 'The Simpsons' Will Die in the Season 26 Premiere

 

Someone From 'The Simpsons' Will Die in the Season 26 Premiere

 

The Season 26 premiere of ‘The Simpsons’ will be the last episode for a “great” character.

Yes, someone is going to be killed off of the long-running animated series this coming fall. Calling it "the Yellow Wedding" during a conference call in reference to the penchant for ‘Games of Thrones’ to kill people during weddings (Red, Purple), executive producer Al Jean told reporters it was a “terrific character” and that he or she is “portrayed by an actor who won an Emmy for playing that character.”

So let the speculation and investigation begin; there are certainly enough clues. To get you started, Hank Azaria, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, Kelsey Grammar, Yeardley Smith, and Julie Kavner have all won Emmys.

Whoever it may be, he or she will join a list of deceased characters that includes Maude Flanders, Mona Simpson, Fat Tony, and most recently Edna Krabappel after voice actor Marcia Wallace passed away last October.

Of course, the producers were sure to note that just because a character dies in the animated world, doesn’t mean they can’t make appearances. “What we told the performer is, ‘This does not mean the end of your participation.'”

This momentous event joins such other noteworthy stories, including a forthcoming LEGO episode for this week’s 550th episode (trailer below) as well as a ‘Futurama’ crossover coming in Season 26.

‘The Simpsons’ airs on Sundays at 8/7c on FOX.

TO MCW:

They said "he or she is “portrayed by an actor who won an Emmy for playing that character.”" So It's most likely the main characterthat person voices...

If that's true, then it's would lead me to believe it's Sideshow Bob voiced by Kelsey Grammar...

They should kill all the characters in a nuclear explosion. The show died years ago. This stupid idea of killing a character because an actor dies is beyond retarded. Where would Disney be if they indulged in this stupidity?

Okay - so that LEGO episode looks amazing. I definitely can't wait for it.

 

Now, as far as figuring out which character will bite the bullet.. Good thing a number of those actors play more than one character (so it may just be one of the characters, rather than a cast member going away). That's as much speculation as I'm willing to do (on the hopeful/optimistic side).
